We are owners at another Diamond resort and traded through Diamond into Flamingo beach for an 8 day stay (Oct. 25-Nov.2). We were in a Deluxe Studio oceanview suite. We absolutely loved the resort. We had read many reviews prior to our arrival and they were generally very accurate. A few things worth noting: never had any problems with the... More

We loved St Maarten and this resort. First let me say I got a studio for one week through interval international for $550- a great deal. I believe hotels.com was running a special during this week for $600 as well (Still a great deal). We were upgraded to one that faced the pool and the Ocean. Fabulous view. You get... More

We had a wonderful time on our second visit to the Flamingo Beach Resort. We found the staff to be helpful, friendly and willing to engage in insightful conversation about the island. We will be returning as many years as we are able. The atomsphere is very engaging for the couple, family or those of us in the best years... More

It's sad that while I was on vacation I kept thinking how unhappy and misinformed I was by reading the reviews here. First, they have some of the most unpleasant staff I have ever encountered at a hotel. When we checked in we were given no information about where to get towels, how to reserve the huts on the beach,... More

Everything was beautiful and well kept. Loved the "negative edge pool". We had a very relaxing time; the studio apt was spacious enough for my husband and me. It overlooked a quiet courtyard lined with flowering tropical shrubbery. From our balcony we had a pleasant view of the pool and sea. Staff was very nice and so were all the... More

We arrived not knowing if we would get an ocean front room or not. When we checked in we found that it indeed was an oceanfront, but on the second floor. As my husband has trouble doing stairs, we asked if it would be possible to have ground floor. They gave us the most perfect room...ground floor with a balcony... More

Flamingo Beach Resort is a place that I really recommend ( even though we waited almost 2h to get our room ready). Our room was on the ground floor, very spacious, with nice pool and beach views. The Hotel beach is very nice, calm waters and the bar ( Topper’s by the beach) was a plus, great food and drinks.... More

We I reserved through DRI I was told that we would have 2 rooms by the ocean. When we arrived I was assigned a 2 bedroom lock-off up on a hill with a view of a wall and a view of old dilapidated tennis courts where they parked rental cars. The unit was poorly stocked and furniture was in sorry... More

Just returned from a weeks stay at the Flamingo Beach Resort. Had a great room with a beach view, as did the other couple we were with. Nice quiet beach, kind of private. Pool also great. Minimal construction as it was "off season", . We rented a car ,recommended if you want to visit the whole island. Many good restaurants... More

My eight year old daughter, my mom and myself just returned from a six day trip to this lovely resort. We got there late on the 12th - we were greeted by a very professional front desk staffer who ignored my whining for a beachfront room and instead gave me the key to a beautiful studio with a view of...
